A total of N13 million was budgeted for telephone calls in the office of Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, in 2019.
The office of Agbola Ajayi, Akeredolu’s deputy got N5 million, still for telephone calls while N2 million was set aside for telephone calls in the office of the senior special assistants to the governor.

The amount also covers donations to unspecified beneficiaries. N50 million was provided for donations in Ajayi’s office.
The breakdown, which was published under special programmes in the 2019 estimates, has N500 million earmarked for “hosting of state guests during special events”.
Also a total of N336 million was also budgeted to cater for gift items during festivities and children parties, just as N230 million was set aside for donations.
The governor’s office also has N107 million on local travel and transport; N2 million on electricity and N25 million for office stationery and computer consumables.
